Pic of the day #235 (Duplex)

In structural geology, a Duplex is a system of Imbricate (overlapping) thrusts that branch off from a single fault below and merge with a thrust fault above. Duplexes form stacks of thrust-bounded rock bodies, which are bounded by roof and floor thrusts. The rock body that is bounded by faults above and below is called a horse.
